Best Family Activities in Malaysia
Dec 2019
We've booked the Hard Knock for family activity on Tuesday 31 December 2019, 10 am shuttle bus pick up from Westin hotel. (Free), workshop started at 10:45 am (booked for 10:30 am but due to the shuttle bus delayed) then we had a guided tour with a great staff Mr. Ravi. Awesome experience touring around the facility and history lessons of Malaysia.

Also had a wonderful experience at the Visitor Centre Store there. A Sales Ms. Zoey Teh was super helpful all along even though I didn't show any sign of buying anything for the first 20 minutes of browsing. Explaining to me most of the pieces I was looking at. Eventually I've bought the Limited Edition of #67 / 300 Iron Man statue. a bit pricey but it's a once a life time purchase and probably won't be available after this trip.

Had a quick lunch at the Cafe, Great Pasta and kids friendly. We then had a free shuttle bus back to Hotel at around 2 pm.

Overall I highly recommended to make your way to do the Hard Knock Workshop, and buy your favorite piece from the store. We will definitely visit again on our next trip to KL for sure.

Again we would like to thank Mr. Ravi for the tour, and Ms. Zoey Teh for her fantastic service.

Tour and Foundry Experience
Jul 2019 • Couples
We had been trying to book a Foundry experience through the website for days. With our last day in Malaysia fast approaching and heading to Royal Selangor was on our must do list, we decided to just turn up. Within 3 minutes of our arrival we had our own tour guide (Joyce). Joyce's knowledge of all things Royal Selangor (history to current production) was amazing. You could hear through her talks the pride and respect she has for the company. Joyce passed us on to Azree who was the Pewtersmith instructor for our Foundry experience. We went through the process of making our own castings from moulds to dabbling in some freehand items. It was quite a therapeutic experience, watching discarded or incorrect pieces melt back into the pewter bath so they could rise again like the Terminator. While we were trying to perfect our creations Azree made us a freehand present. I believe Joyce told him that we were visiting for our 25th wedding anniversary. After the tour and Foundry experience, it was some time for retail shopping. I wish I could take a lot more pieces home than we have but our personal shopper Tracy was very knowledgeable on all the available products and assisted in helping us make choices.
Dont be discouraged if you cannot make your booking. You can just turn up and like us hopefully get in. It was a fantastic and I would go back and do it again.

Pewter classes
Jun 2019 • Couples
We took part in a pewter class in Penang as we had visited the factory in Kuala Lumpur. We got to take home two bowls that we had made ourselves.
Good fun.

The pewter workmanship is amazing
Jan 2019 • Family
Royal Selangor is famous for its workmanship in pewter. The range of product is extensive but the two areas that caught our eye was the work they have put into developing product from the Star Wars series and the Marvel Cinematic Universe is just amazing. The attention to detail is evident in the scenes and figurines they create. A bit pricey but as a one off purchase it is something to be considered.

Stuff are nice but Staff very pushy
May 2017 • Couples
I enjoy the artwork esp how refinely done & the details with facial expressions, the flow of clothings & the high quality standards. Staff are attentive, slightly knowledgeable, courteous but kinda pushy to close a sale, desperate to hit their monthly sales target.
If without that pushiness, i would have purchased several figurine items which i really liked eg Kwan Kong, Hans Solo, Darth Vader, Darth Maul & Keris.

Pewter Engineering
Jan 2018 • Friends
We stopped at the Royal Selangor Visitor Centre, which showed many of their more intricate wares. Upstairs we were part of the school of hard knocks, taking a circle of pewter, a wooden form, and a wooden hammer and making a small pewter bowl. After that, walking through the samples I had a lot sharper eye about how they made their pieces. We brought our bowls home, made us remember the brand..

Of Interest, the guides talk a little to fast. WOW factor at the end.
Dec 2017 • Couples
We enjoyed walking through the factory, seeing how all the products are made. Didn't realise it was such a hands on job. We found the guide talked way too fast and they put too many people into one group so you couldn't get close enough to hear them anyway. (Lucky for us our bus tour guide told us a little about the factory before we arrived). However but let this put you off. After the factory tour, you go into the shop and WOW FACTOR... some amazing things, I thought reasonably priced for Pewter. Make sure you take the time to look at everything...especially the swans
